Trump branded “embarrassment to his country” as he shuns Biden inauguration - BBC News

President Trump has announced he won't be attending the inauguration of his successor, Joe Biden, just hours after promising a peaceful transition.
He will become the first US president to miss the ceremony in more than 150 years.
Joe Biden said the decision was a good thing and it was one of the only things they'd ever agreed on. He said President Trump was an embarrassment to his country.
Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by North America editor Jon Sopel.

    It's ironic considering 90% of the people who viewed the "inauguration" also shunned Biden, judging by the like/dislike ratio, unless the Democrat facists changed it again! 🤣👎👎👎👎

    Way to go President Trump. Biden is not President. Biden did say during his campaign that he doesn’t need people to vote him. He will be the next President. The election was rigged .

    Who is the embarrassment? If a ship's captain is unfit for duty and sinks the ship, and he knew he was, he gets prosecuted. Biden is hiding his cognitive inability to govern, that is embarrassing. If someone gets his finger on the "Nuke 'Em Button" and he is going really senile, there is something wrong with the system.

    If Trump genuinely thinks the election was rigged, and I personally think he does, I don't think he is embarrassing to shun the inauguration. If this new US Government starts to implement a Covid-19 Gestapo, in a new Nazi style medical tyranny, it will make all this look very different.

    now we can blame Biden for everything like the radicals did trump especially now that the left control the house, senate and just about everything else they touched because they cheated so let’s see how bad they fail and then have no excuses to fall back on :D it’s gonna be glorious watching them fail as all the sheep have surprised pikachu faces wondering why their elite corrupted leaders are not miracle workers. Lol imagine controlling everything now so no one to blame but themselves. This has all worked out perfectly to expose the frauds of the left and their incompetence.

    I don't blame him especially the way they treated him How would you fill if you were President and The Democratic party treated him with no respect And Now all his hard work is going to be reversed No one liked Obama They were not satisfied with his work and then Trump's and now people are not Satisfied with Biden because He wants to take away The Amendments those are your rights and no one will be able to protest and riot which I don't like because it gets out of hand and it leads to violence so now what are all of us going to do the gun rights will be taken away the freedom of speech will be taken away and if you say something wrong you will be censored like the President was And this President now doesn't want no one to by Gas cars he wants electric and The Oil Tycoons are going to be unhappy because he wants to stop fracking and You think that he's going to bring back more Jobs in America think Again because Obama brought more Jobs but they were all over seas in the east and this President now is going to do the same our Pharmacy is probably going back to China and people are going to be more sick Trump brought back our Pharmacy so now everything is going to be all reversed so people don't complain You voted for this President and also They are going to push more abortions for the stem cell so President Donald J Trump was right and no one wanted him so we can't complain will be censored and now The Capital looks like a concentration camp with Bobwire no thanks to the rioters on the 6of January So see what happens when a riot is taken place now we look like a communist Nation Not America 🇺🇸 ⚔️🛡️ it's a shame because Our Soldiers have fought hard for our Freedom and not to mention Our President in the past and that is what President Trump wanted for America to be America so I hope we are not going to be bought out So let's see how this President will do and Vice President

    𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗨𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲(𝘀) 𝗼𝗳 𝗛𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆 America is in a state of deep scrutiny. So is humanity. Today’s America presents the future state of humanity: If the world advances the way America is advancing, we will end up being divided between two blocs that hate each other in every sense-ideologically, approach to life, culture, education, and every other way. It will be impossible to connect the adversaries, just as it is impossible to connect the Democrats with the Republicans in today’s divided United States. As things are, there will be no calm. It seems as though things have gone out of control, but they haven’t. It is simply what happens when the ego wants to govern and will not hear of anything less than that. It does not want connection; it wants domination. It may be horrifying to watch, but we are merely witnessing the natural process. When everything revolves around who has more and who has less, and when the ego keeps intensifying, we come to a state where the ego wants everything, and to leave absolutely nothing to the other side. This is what you get when you don’t educate people. It doesn’t matter how much you invest in aid packages and relief programs, when the ego comes to a state of all or nothing, nothing helps. Therefore, we should thank America for the example it is giving us, at its own expense. We should thank the American people for setting an example that demonstrates what our future will be like unless we achieve unity among us. In other words, if we don’t achieve a united state in humanity, humanity will become like today’s United States: an assortment of nations, colors, races, and faiths that hate each other to death, and do everything they can to cater to their hatred.

    Good on him. Why on earth should he visit the celebration of the demise of the USA when the election was won by fraud, dishonesty and corruption? For four years the man has been lied about, false reported on, not one thing positive (and there have been plenty) has been announced on tv, MSM has pushed the propaganda, the misinformation and downright lies the whole time. It has been disgraceful. I someone stole your car for instance, would you celebrate with them further down the track for getting their drivers licence? I think not.

    Trump told us in good time that he was not going to attend, and rightly so. What the liberals did was to attend Trump's inauguration with grim faces, already plotting how they would start impeachment right after, based on no evidence or basis whatsoever. Right after Trump's inauguration they said: "The impeachment has started," and got right to work attempting that. The basis for the Russian conspiracy scam was laid by Obama while still in office. So what we need more of, are people like Trump who expresses and does as he feels, without hiding it or pretending. High five to the pro-democracy protestors who marched into the Capitol, it was never more justified than now.
